Visit the Big Lake--Gitche Gumee
Favorite thing: The first place I would take someone upon visiting Duluth would be Canal Park and the Ariel Lift Bridge. We could sit down there and watch the big ocean and lakes freighters come and go under the bridge; have an ice cold lemonade or beer on Grandma's deck; take the lakewalk; enjoy an ice cream cone; shop in Canal Park and have lunch or dinner too!
Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Duluth is the big lake and watching the ships come and go. I miss the fog horns of the ships when they enter and and leave the harbor! We go to the visitduluth.com site in the winter just to hear the fog horns and look at pictures of the ships! If you haven't been to Duluth yet, you are missing out. Plan a summer trip first though!
Favorite thing: Well, I was born in the big city of Minneapolis, but my mom was born right here in Duluth and since she still lives in Minnesota, she comes up here often to revisit the places of her youth. It's a great town to get away and relax and to enjoy some fresh air and nice people.
Hills, hills and more hills
Favorite thing: Duluth is a city built on hills! You either go up or down. Walking can get tiredsome and driving can be frightful if you are not used to them.
Watch a huge ship come into...
Favorite thing: Watch a huge ship come into the harbor. You can see a schedule a ships coming into the harbor in the free musuem at canal park.
Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad
Favorite thing: It's good to see the old passenger railcars rolling through Duluth, even if it's just a short excursion trip.
Leif Erikson Park - Amphitheater
Favorite thing: Nice place to attend a concert or a show - but if I were performing here, I'd be concerned about being overshadowed by the scenergy.
Drive along the north shore of...
Favorite thing: Drive along the north shore of Lake Superior. Gooseberry Falls is one of many beautiful state parks along the way.
Favorite thing: You'll find some interesting architecture in downtown Duluth. Superior Street and First Street are lined with cool shops and restaurants and you'll find some interesting buildings like this one.
